note of the presidents who are here. george bush senior and his son are not there today. jimmy carter is there today. bill clinton is there today. and, again, joe biden, one of the longest serving senators in the history. he may be making all the moves down to make himself in opposition as well. let's take a peek at what is going on. >> the honorable charles schumer. [ cheering ] >> mr. president, mr. vice president, members of congress, all who are present, and to all who are watching, welcome to the capital and to this celebration of our great democracy. this is the 57th inauguration of an american president. no matter how many times one witnesses this event, its simplicity, its majesty and, most of all, it is meaning. it is sacred and cautious and trusting a power from we the people to our chosen leader never fails to make one's heart beat faster as it will today with the inauguration of president barack h obama. [ cheering ] >> now, we know that we would not be here today were it not for those who stand guard around the world to preserve our freedom. to those in our armed forces,

to other locations on capitol hill. from harry truman through jimmy carter, it was always on the east front of the capital. moved by the congressional committee to the west front in 1985, which is where it remains today. kansas, independent line, good morning. caller: i think it is amazing that we all want to complain about every penny that is spent in washington, d.c., because of the inauguration. this is something special that happens every four years. surely, surely, people, you can understand. if you have a wedding, you do not spend that every year. you wait and you spend a fortune. the inauguration is very special to people, we should sit back and relax. it is a big event for our country. like you said, people of other nations do not do this on a regular basis. we do. the cost might not be so expensive if we did not love our guns so much and paid attention to the fact that security is what is costing the big money. host: thank you for the call. this is an etching of the reviewing stand of when president mckinley was sworn in, in front of the white house. the long tradition of having th
